BLOOMWORKSHOP Birthday Giveaway!

I have been busy doing my homework for Bloom, the online workshop I am taking. That picture up there was one of the shots I took trying to complete the assignment. When I put the camera down and turned on the computer I made the mistake of going on the workshop forum. There is so much info. there you could get lost for a week! That's a good thing though. Good information, great classmates and awesome teachers who could ask for more?

As I was reading the forum I was reminded of the birthday bash going on for this workshop. The workshop's birthday is going on now and, the good part for us is that they are giving away prizes! For a chance to win visit their blog, follow the directions and then leave them a comment about what you did. Easy-peasy :-)

Still Learning

Before I became a stay at home mom, I was a teacher. I LOVED teaching. One of the things I loved was that I was constantly learning. Whether it was learning new curriculum, learning how a student learns best, or learning new teaching techniques, I was always learning.

So, while I am not still teaching in a classroom, I am still learning new things everyday. Photography became my passion a while back and I started learning. The learning just keeps on going and it never ceases to amaze me the amount of information out there.

I am busy learning a lot over these next few weeks while taking an online course. I can't begin to tell you all the things I learned this week but that picture up there shows you a few. From learning how to nail exposure with natural light, to faking a studio look ( that picture up there was actually shot in my bedroom!), to converting images to a great looking black and white- I have been learning! And that makes me happy :-)

Where's My Baby??

My days of babies are dwindling down. I can't believe it. How have all my babies gotten so big? We have been used to watching Louisa "walk" around on her knees for the past few months. Seems she has had absolutely no need to use her feet. And you should see this girl! She is fast- feet or no feet, this girl can move!

But recently, our little Louisa has discovered that she can actually walk on her feet. She is really encouraged to get up on those feet when one of her siblings beckons her. Look at big sis back there cheering her on.

I think Liza may just well be Louisa's biggest cheerleader. I don't know who was happier that she was walking- Louisa or Liza.

And it is so sweet when little sis makes it to big sis. I love that my girls love each other. Look at this hug :-)! I know, as they get older they will have their spats but I do believe that they won't forget these little moments that they share.

I am so thankful that my kiddos have each other to cheer them on. And I am thankful that when these little milestones happen I have some little people around here who share my joy. I just can't believe that my babies are all getting bigger. Now that she is walking I guess she is officially a toddler. Oh my!
